Thinning Hair

Up to 30% of men and women will experience some sort of hair thinning in their life. They often notice it with a skinnier ponytail, less volume in their hair, or more scalp visible over time.

The good news is - there are ways to slow thinning hair, and we can teach you how to improve you hair loss or thinning hair.

What Causes Hair Thinning And Loss?

Hair thinning is caused by slower and weaker hair production from your hair follicles. Over time, these follicles spend more time “resting” and less time producing thick, strong hairs. It can be caused by stress, a lack of some nutrients, or it’s often just genetic.

What To Do For Thinning Hair?

It can be frustrating to first notice thinning hair, but there are some quick and easy ways to improve things right off the bat.

First, address your whole-body health. Make sure you’re eating a healthy diet. Foods rich in B vitamins keep hair follicles healthy, decreasing the risk of hair loss, for instance. And a balanced diet of vegetables, fruits, and proteins can keep your body in its best shape, which means its in its best shape to grow hair.

Some supplements can also help, like biotin, zinc, and iron, all of which are involved in your body’s hair production and maintenance.

Learn how to manage stress, as hair loss and thinning hair can sometimes be caused by increased stress or traumatic experiences. This can impact the balance of hormones in our bodies. Make sure you’re getting good, regular sleep.

By taking care of your scalp, you also keep each hair follicle in tip-top growing shape. Make sure your scalp is nourished, hydrated and healthy, to promote strong your hair will be stronger and more resistant to breakage, promoting healthy growth.

What About Treatments for Thinning Hair?

There are some great treatment options out there for thinning hair. Some of the safest and natural solutions are listed above, which are basically lifestyle changes to get rid of thinning hair.

But sometimes you need to treat thinning hair with a little more potency, which is when prescription-grade and over-the counter options come in.

Propecia and Rogaine are two very popular options, the first of which is an oral pill and the second a topical treatment. Both work well for some people in about 6 months, but both also have some side effects that you should be aware of.

Other natural solutions include DHT (dihydrotestosteron) blockers like ECGC, palmetto berry, green tea, and even caffeine. These are all natural solutions that can be used topically, applied to the scalp, to stimulate hair follicles for thicker and fuller hair again. Using not one, but a few in combination has proven especially powerful at taking hair follicles out of their resting phase, and keeping them in their growing phase. They can also increase the hair’s strength and thickness.
